Barbara Barow, VMD, Associate Veterinarian

VMD, University of Pennsylvania


Dr. Barbara Barow earned a Bachelor of Science degree in animal science from Cook College of Rutgers University and received her V.M.D. degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in Philadelphia. She hails from the City of Brotherly Love where most of her extended family still resides. She joined the staff of Foster Animal Hospital in March 2000 after relocating to New Jersey with her husband and two children. Although her main emphasis throughout her career as a veterinarian has been small animal general medicine and surgery, prior to veterinary school she spent three years as a research associate in the department of (human) neurosurgery at th Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia investigating the biochemical changes that occur in the brain after severe head injury. Dr. Barow enjoys spending time with her family on summer weekends at the south Jersey shore, and counts bicycling, tennis, reading and needlework among her hobbies. She also shares her home with two amazing felines: Ziggy and Zoe.
